The State of Israel is an apartheid regime. So he was recognized in a report published on January 12 by human rights activists from the non-profit organization Betselem, founded by Israeli left-wing politicians. This is reported on the website of the organization.
“The entire territory between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River is governed by one principle: to strengthen and consolidate the superiority of one group over another, the Jews over the Palestinians,” the report said. Its authors emphasize that Israel has already reached the level of oppression of the Palestinian population, at which it can be declared an apartheid state, and not at all a democratic regime, as previously thought.
We are talking about violations of the human rights of Palestinians in the disputed territories, the seizure of land by Jewish settlers, the ban on immigration to Israel for persons without Jewish origin without special permission. Human rights activists called on the international community to influence the Jewish state.
Israeli diplomats reacted with indignation to the publication of the report: they called it “nothing more than a propaganda tool” and stressed that the Arab minority is represented in all branches of the country's government, writes CNN.
After the 1967 war, Israeli settlements were established in Judea and Samaria in the West Bank. The UN Security Council considers these territories occupied, while Israel defines them as disputed.
